    The peanut butter on a pop bottle cleaned out our moose camp pretty quick. Put one of these in a boat with antifreeze instead of water.....

    I had the same problem, with mice. I like to store the boat ready to fish with rods, tackle boxes, etc under the custom fitted cover. After realizing some damage to cork handles and seat foam,etc. I discovered the cure, moth balls. I always have some in the compartments and load the boat with extras for the winter. No problems since. I now use the same method for winter storage of the camper.

    Mothballs in every compartment of my boat. And also shaved Irish Spring in a margarine tub also in every compartment. No issues last year and the smell was still quite strong when we pulled the cover off.

    Mothballs in open trays in each compartment. Then come spring air it out for 3-4 days and you are good to go.

    I went with the mothballs and dryer sheets..... Just went to look at it the other day and it looks to be in good shape.... I guess when I pull it out next month we will know for sure....
    Here's hoping for another good season
